Students under 18 interested in sharing their views on issues for children and young people are invited to apply to attend regional advisory groups and have their voices heard.

The new Commissioner for Children, Mark Morrissey, is establishing a new way of hearing children and young people's voices across Tasmania about the issues they face through new regional children and young person advisory groups.

There will be two regional advisory groups in each region, North, North West and South. The groups will be 6 to 8 members with one for children under 12 years of age and the other for young people from 12 to 17 years of age. The advisory groups will meet in the region 3 to 4 times a year.

Attached is an information pack for applicants which includes a flyer, background information and an application form.

Please note that the closing date has been extended to Friday 13 March 2015.

Could you please pass on the information pack to any young person that you think would be interested in being part of one of these groups.
